I do a lot of posts focusing on speculative fiction book covers. Some look at the good, but a lot of the time I’m poking fun at the weird, the strange, the bizarre from my favorite reading genre. Too often I seem to be picking on the covers from decades past when the artistic style was much different from today. And that isn’t very fair of me, because a lot of those old covers were damn good, great even.
Today, I will seek to remedy my idiotic oversight and make amends for my former slight by taking a look at some of the most memorable speculative fiction covers of the past: the DAW SF Book line, where beautiful covers were almost always on display.
Let us start with a series of covers for a favorite author of mine: Michael Moorcock!
Now, let us take a look at some of the science fiction covers DAW published back in the day!
Cool stuff. Damn cool. The old school look and feel of these classic covers really a delight to my eyes. Let’s end this with a look at few covers with a more fantasy feel to them.
Have any to add?
